I was thinking today about what if the stimulus package doesn't work. I don't think it will but I do think it will be passed. If we spiral into another Great Depression I don't think it will resemble the 1930's. In the 30's we were mostly a rural country. People had values and morals. Can we say that about American society today as a whole? People have always been people and of course we had our drug addicts, rapists, murders etc .... from the beginning of time. Never before have we had such large segments of the population that lacked ethics and morals. I think another depression will be an event of biblical proportions. We have had it so good for so long I don't think our society would survive it. I got a glimpse of our society breaking down after Katrina. There were untold murders, rapes and looting that will never be prosecuted. I live in the burbs of NOLA and returned home 4 days after the storm. I was not prepared for what I had to deal with. People ran the out lights going 100 miles per hour without regard for others. I will never forget at a light that was out, a 70 plus year old man giving the one finger salute to everyone he passed cursing away. The local Sheriff department had given us instructions to shoot looters and dump their bodies in the bayou behind the subdivision. In gasoline lines I never saw so many arguments and people waving their guns before. They also did this type of stuff in the FEMA MRE lines. In the city there were roving mobs looting, raping and murdering people. You also had the exact opposite. Neighbors shared food and we took in my in-laws for over a month. Now they are riding high again so they don't talk to us. Such is the nature of people. If one in four Americans lost their jobs and things became desperate, what do you think would happen? I think it would be like the LA riots and Katrina rapped into one big chaotic nation.
